|THE PARTICIPATION OF UKRAINIAN NATIONALIST PARTIES IN THE PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS AND WORK OF THE VERKHOVNA RADA (1990-2002)|
|Abstract. The article is devoted to the activities of Ukrainian nationalist parties in the parliament of first three convocations. It considers nationalists’ election campaigns, candidates’ programs, and election results. The author analyzes the pre-election situation in the country and tries to find objective and subjective reasons for poor results the right radicals had. It turns out that inattention to social slogans, lack of funding and a negative reputation formed during the years of Soviet rule and independent Ukraine prevented nationalists from becoming an influential political force.
|Key words: nationalism, political parties, elections, Parliament, the Verkhovna Rada.
